This is a highly respectable, scientific &. literary journal, publish ed at Home. The article which we propose to lay beforo our readers, is written by Professor Migliarini, of tlicfi'r.iml Ducal (iallerv at Flor ence, one of the mot learned arch.vologists of the day.

In a remote, anil as nstlie line arts are. con cerned, uncultivated iwt of America, inhabited I iv hnsb.indmcti and shepherds, in the illago of Wondstiwk- in Vermont. Mr. Hiram Powers was born, about the year 1805. It happened to mm in his yonth, to be removed to the neighborhood of Cincinnati in Ohio, then a village, but now a considerable) cily. lly this change, of place, lie gained liltlo or nothing, in reference to the tie velopcment of his latent capacity. On the con trary, ho soon had the misfortune to be deprived of his father, and left without means of support. engaged in tho construction and superintendence of the mechanism of a public exhibition at Cin- cinnntt An inward feeling, liowcvcr, convinced him, that this was not his destiny; he formed a con ception in his mind of something like sculpture, while yet ignorant of tlic very existence of that art. So strong was this passion, that if bo had not afterwards found the art in use, ho himself would have invented it. The flexible materials on which ho made his first experiments, partic ularly wax, did not givo him full satisfaction. He reached the age of seventeen years, in this state of restless desire ; when he saw a single bust in piaster, Ilia head of Washington, an or dinary work, which, however, attracted his pro found attention. After a considerable interval nnd manv strug gles, ho met, at Cincinnati, with nn individual w ho possessed some knowledge of the art of sculpture, and modelled in clay the likenesses of , one or two public characters. He learned from him the general method, the material adiptedto it, and the mode of taking a cast from a model, This was for Powers a most happy discovery, and one that seemed to realize his vision. .'';Se.,',' h endeavor to imitate the works of 'J1'3 individual; then to make an attempt from ,,,t '"' lu "l11" u'1" " ur- pa" what he had seen; finally to succeed in mautng iicauiiiui likenesses, such certainly as he had witnessed no exnmplo of before i all this Wlls so rapidly accomplished, that it is not easy to relate tlio steps ot tho progress, so swift was hii i lhght,borno on Iho pinions of a happy genius.

Kinploying himself with ever new delight in inodilelling in clay, he passeil thrnui'li several considerable cities of his native country, nnd reached Washington at a fortunate moment. congress was men in session, composed nl some of the most respectable persons iu the United '7'aie.s.

Ho proceeded rapidly in executing the liu-ts which ho had brought with him, in a stylo which commanded the admiration of the connois,seur.- wiin neiieiu iiiem. The reputation of the portraits of Apelle s well known. They were considered so like their original, iu all respects, that the physiog nomists of that day wero able to form their prog- no-iics upon mem us accurately as on the ex animation of tho living individual. In like nvinner tho bu-ts of Mr. Powers challenge a similar scrutiny, on the part of those, who"iiu- der other names, and with other objects, emnlov themselves in similar jiidgmentsof character, at tho present diy ; and who will find great reason to maintain that his heads may bo studied like . the portraits of Apelles, though destitute of those I " tact, nn a certain occasion, when 1 was 1 examining tho htits of Powers, ihcru was an 1 individual present who had perhaps some tine , tore of this sciencc.t and who said to me with enthiisiasui, " Do you seo that head 1 Whal penetration!

I will endeavor, In conclusion, to ntiticipato the timid judgment of those sophistical critics, who admitting what many connoisseurs liavo cor dially granted tho superiority of Mr. Powers as n skilful maker of busts, may yet be slow to allow him tho namo of a perfect crntntnr In consoqiicnccot ins not Having produced works in the more important branches of the art. To such objectors 1 would reply, that they must consider that his progress has been so rapid and Impetuous, in the field in which ho commenced, as to have left hint no leisure as vet for other labors. .Meantime he no longer Inhabits a dis tant region, where the Arts are in their infancy ; nor does ho any longer want tho ttld of examples of excellence, and the necessary information. Ho who has been able to nuke such progress without a master, will easily achieve whatever is yet wanting, now that hois placed in a situa tion more favorable to his progress. It may be also added that ho has already commenced the model of a nude statue, which wo may well flatter ourselves will be carried on to its perfec tion, equally with nny other work which Mr. Powers tniy undertake. Wherever there is the gift of a happy genius, joined with assiduity and a passion for the cho sen Art, together with the modesty necessary for a constant search after improvement, there it is safe to predict a complete and easy success.

The foregoing estimate of the talent of our distinguished countryiran becomes still more satisfactory, when wo nllect that it is a charac teristic of tho Italians, remarked nnnti two con- juries ago, by Milton, not to bo forward to bestow written encomiums on men of this side the Alps. Wo have not tie least wish to receive ungraciously the praise of Mr. Mi'liarini. which, i we arc sure, is bestowed it pood faith and with good will; but it is not mil not the language of a panegyrist, but evident!' framed with some care to avoid shocking nitlmal partialities and the sensibility of eminent col temporaries, among Ins own countrymen. He weighs every word in tlio golden scales of a learned criticism ; nnd ! yet not only institutes an chlorate comparison between Mr. Powcrs's case end that of I.ysi p- pus, but justly states that tho rajo of our conn, tryman, in attaining so high a degree of excel - i lenco hoi omy vv uuouia inasie- properly so can-' cd, but without the advantage cf a general con- temptation of the works uf ot'ier sculptors, is icithnul t varallrl.

Some of his moving figures were brought to perfection by months of assiduous lahor, ami the apphcatun ol tho most ingenious mechanical contrivances. There is no doubt that his noviciate in th's humble sphere was an excellent school for tho development of the me- chanical skill, which hepossesses in an eminent degree. He was at a liter period employed by liter neriod eninlnvrd bv Maclzcl to repair some of his automata.
